Nice! Two straight record fills, 44.4, then 45.3. Hoping I can maintain that trend, but the long freeway stretches I do are an impediment.

I'm working on technique and routes, which should help. 46 next tank?

Another record. 48.4mpg, and that's including a school dropoff this morning where "go" was the singular priority...

Well done. My FE is heading in the opposite direction, now the temperature is dropping as autumn progresses.

Fear not, I'll be joining you soon...summer has just started to break in earnest here in Texas in the last week or two.

Now, the goal will be to "minimize" the FE depression (ha,ha)!

Colder temperatures and cold-weather fuel are here. We've been having overnight lows in the 20's and 30's in northern Arizona. My last two fills in my Mustang barely broke 32 MPG.
When the snow hits, I won't be able to drive my Mustang to work . Work is for people who don't know how to ski . This ski season, I hope to break last season's record of 80 days. My F-150 only averages in the high teens, but I only drive it about 7K miles/year. It's a sacrifice I'm more than willing to make.

Looking back at my records for the Echo, I realized I've managed to avg. 50+ mpg (50.9) over six months from 5/01 to 11/01 and only burnt 29.2 gallons of fuel. I really never thought that would be possible. The last couple weeks of Oct. were down a little but the average was there.
